Pelosi tells Democrats she wants to see Trump ‘in prison’

During a meeting with senior Democrats, including Jerrold Nadler, Google’s bought-and-paid-for representative from New York, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she doesn’t just want to see President Trump impeached, she wants to see him “in prison,” Politico reported.

“I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,” she said, according to several Democrat sources familiar with the meeting.

According to Politico:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi told senior Democrats that she’d like to see President Donald Trump “in prison” as she clashed with House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler in a meeting on Tuesday night over whether to launch impeachment proceedings.

Pelosi met with Nadler (D-N.Y.) and several other top Democrats who are aggressively pursuing investigations against the president, according to multiple sources. Nadler and other committee leaders have been embroiled in a behind-the-scenes turf battle for weeks over ownership of the Democrats’ sprawling investigation into Trump.

Nadler pressed Pelosi to allow his committee to launch an impeachment inquiry against Trump — the second such request he’s made in recent weeks only to be rebuffed by the California Democrat and other senior leaders. Pelosi stood firm, reiterating that she isn’t open to the idea of impeaching Trump at this time.

Pelosi, the sources reportedly said, told Democrats she would rather see Trump defeated at the ballot box, then prosecuted for his alleged crimes.

Crimes, like defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016, working to secure the border and boosting the American economy…  All things the Democrats truly hate.

The Politico report further stated:

Other Democrats said Pelosi’s comment wasn’t that surprising given her previous criticisms of the president, including saying Trump “is engaged in a cover-up,” that his staff and family should stage an intervention and that the president’s actions “are villainous to the Constitution of the United States.”

Ashley Etienne, a Pelosi spokeswoman said Pelosi and the chairmen “had a productive meeting about the state of play with the Mueller report. They agreed to keep all options on the table and continue to move forward with an aggressive hearing and legislative strategy, as early as next week, to address the president’s corruption and abuses of power uncovered in the report.”

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Means Chairman Richard Neal D-Mass., said that if Democrats open an inquiry, they should be prepared to impeach.  But, they noted, the caucus isn’t ready to go that far.

Perhaps there are those who understand the possible consequences of a coup d’etat intended to illegally remove Trump for the alleged “crime” of defeating a Democrat in an election…
